Anyway, peanuts are a great snack and when you buy them in bulk they are soooooo much cheaper than going with the name brand peanuts (and you don't even need a coupon)! Since the kind I buy are plain, I decided to try and spice them up a bit. I've always loved the sugared peanuts that you get at fairs, and I have found a really easy way to make them at home. YUMMMMMMMMMY! And, I'm no gourmet chef, so if I can figure this out, I'm pretty sure you can, too!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 cups shelled, unsalted peanuts
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
3. Eventually, the sugar will start to recrystallize on the peanuts. Continue to stir until the syrup is completely gone and your peanuts are dry and crusty, coated with the sugar mixture.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stop by often!
